Physical keys are still in use in many buildings around campus. Some students may never need keys during their time at Bowdoin while others may receive several. Keys are authorized by various departments and are issued only to the original, named keyholder.

All issued keys are expected to be returned to the OneCard office eventually and should never be handed off to someone else, returned to a department office, or left behind in a room after move-out.

Unreturned keys are charged at $50 (key for a single door) or $100 (keys for 2+ doors). Charges can be waived or refunded upon OneCard's receipt of the missing key.
